An accomplished and innovative international administrator and educator with over three decades of global leadership experience, including seven years of university teaching in Rome, Italy, Dr. Callaghan has institution-wide responsibility for the leadership, management, coordination, and development of international programs at Georgia College & State University.  He has established and managed overseas satellite campuses, dual-degree programs, plus study abroad programs, and teaching and research opportunities for faculty, throughout the world.  Dr. Callaghan's vision for the university - and the community and region - positions Georgia College as genuinely engaged with the world, and the world engaged with it.  Dr. Callaghan was an early pioneer of programming - including internet-based programming - that connects students to their academic majors and interests, while also providing important international pre-professional experience and service opportunities.  He has written numerous book reviews and essays about international education - particularly with regard to increased access for under-represented and disadvantaged populations - and is co-editing a multi-author, multi-national, volume on curriculum theory and pedagogy in international higher education.  Dr. Callaghan is the holder of a doctorate in the history of art from Temple University, and M.A. and B.A. degrees in that discipline (plus work in philosophy) from Michigan State University.  His current research is in the semiotics of art, and the origins and development of 13th-century Italian painting.
